The London Ecuadorian embassy is a first floor flat in a block. It doesn't have a roof apart from the communal roof to the block which is obviously not diplomatic territory.

Simple solution, turn up and surround the Police scum, if there are enougth of us then they wont be able to do anything. Offer Mr Assange passage to where ever he wants to go and if the NWO Totalitarian Police and Goverment scum try anything we rip there throats out, secure Mr Assange, do a about turn and then head for Number 10, some piano wire and a long drop will sort David Cameron right out!
We cant let them extrodite this innocent man, plus we might get our country back!

The link to that particular "act" is in my first post, such an act shouldn't exist in the first place.
It is all just a big act really.
Here is the link again:

Wrong on several counts.
It isn't an international law, merely "convention". For reference, it is the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.
The Embassy remains the property of the host nation, according to the Convention it doesn't belong in any way to the nation occupying it.
The Embassy is obliged to follow local laws, even if the Diplomats themselves are immune from prosecution, but they could find themselves all declared PNG and removed themselves..
Assange is fleeing bail and has broken his bail conditions, ergo he is breaking local law and the Embassy is assisting him in doing so. On that note, we have a "local law" which allows us to revoke the privileged status of an Embassy in such situations.
